Text Image to Speech Conversion using Matlab - MATLAB PROJECTS CODE


Image to speech processing has numerous real life applications, like it can be used as an assistive technology for physically handicapped and blind people, interpretation and translation of unfamiliar language into a familiar language, etc. In this paper, we describe how image to speech processing can be done using Matlab and Microsoft SAPI.

Firstly, text extraction is done from sample image using OCR program, developed on Matlab. The OCR program gives output in the form of text file. Then, this text file is used as an input to a visual basic program which uses Microsoft SAPI libraries that converts text file into speech utterance.
